Expiration Date:Expiration Date
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

NOW AlphaSorb-C includes Transport C-Plus, the trademarked blend of Threonic Acid Enhanced Buffered (non-acidic) Calcium Ascorbate and Alpha Lipoic acid. Threonic Acid (a Vitamin C metabolite) has been shown to enhance cellular uptake of vitamin C. Alpha Lipoic Acid is an antioxidant known to help regenerate Vitamin C in the body. Furthermore, studies suggest that Alpha Lipoic Acid may enhance the body's utilization of Vitamin C. The addition of Bioflavonoids helps to create a well-absorbed, highly effective Vitamin C supplement. Vitamin C is best known as a highly effective antioxidant that can protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free radicals.
As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule 1 to 3 times daily, preferably with food. Consider taking these other NOW products: Pycnogenol and Advanced Gamma E Complex.
Cellulose (capsule), cellulose powder, stearic acid (vegetable source), magnesium stearate (vegetable source) and silica.

I'm currently doing chelation to remove mercury and lead from my body. This AlphaSorb-C helps this process for me (confirmed with muscle testing). I find that I tolerate esterified vitamin C better than ascorbic acid, and I like the other synergistic ingredients in this supplement. Good price too. But I wish it came in a tablet as well as Vcaps.

This uses the C to my wife because with other forms of vitamin has some problems with the stomach. Since the uses has not complained. Without any particular explanation I generally preferred the vitamins of C NOW who thought they were in good price and offer good results.
Vitamin C + ALA
Posted by dr-alex on Nov 21, 2015 | Verified Purchase
Why AlphaSorb? Higher absorption - "move more Vitamin C through the body over a longer period of time", gentle to the stomach and of course the inclusion of Alpha Lipoic Acid, a truly multi-talented antioxidant "recycling plant!" You see, ALA has the ability to recycle or regenerate other antioxidants that have become inactive, such as vitamins C and E, CoQ10 and it even itself! Recommended serving size is 1 cap/day but when my body's immunity is compromised, I increase the dose to 3 caps/day (1-1-1). Highly recommended.
Excellent Vit C

For anyone but especially a person who has AFS, this is an excellent Vit C taking less adrenal to break down and absorb.

"Magnesium Stearate or Stearic Acid cause a rapid collapse of T-cell membrane function and cell death HEALTH WARNING!The Truth About Vitamin Supplementshttp://www.qnlabs.com/warning.phpCheck your vitamin labels. Do they contain Magnesium Stearate or Stearic Acid? Studies by the University of Texas Health Science Center and the East Carolina University School of Medicine reveal that these toxic excipients cause a rapid collapse of T-cell membrane function and cell death; therefore suppressing the immune system. (Immunology, 1990, Jul.)It is estimated that 90% of the vitamin and mineral products consumed today contain stearates. Stearates are used as binders in tablets and in the processing of gelatin capsules. Consumers often take handfuls of capsules and tablets to get vitamins, minerals and other key nutrients from supplements that contain stearates, and instead, in reality, get a powerful immune suppressive treatment.For more information on this topic and copies of the above-quoted studies as well as other studies and warnings concerning stearates, contact us at service@.... QNL Quantum Rx Nutrition nutritional supplements are 100% free of toxic excipients, including magnesium stearate or stearic acid."The public must be more aware of nutritional products that initially bring a good vitamin or mineral but hurt you in other ways." (Dr. Eduardo Sanchez, Commissioner - Texas Department of Health, speaking before the Texas Strategic Health Partnership,University of Texas, Sept. 25, 2003)..." http://www.indiadivine.org/audarya/ayurveda-health-wellbeing/1073808-magnesium-stearate-stearic-acid-cause-rapid-collapse-t-cell-membrane-function-cell-death.html
